The Woodlands Marathon ups ante for marathoners, Woodlands residents
The Woodlands Marathon announced recently that top finishers at this year’s race will share over $26,000 in prize money, including nearly $5,500 earmarked for local runners.
Top finishers in the marathon and half marathon, both held on February 28, will see increases in prize money payout in most categories from 2014. But what will generate the most excitement amongst local runners – and will create some very competitive races – is the $4,800 set aside for the “Fastest in The Village” program, which will reward the top male and female finisher from each of The Woodlands Township’s eight villages in both the marathon and half marathon.
